MEXT Joint Usage / Research Center
Research Center for Behavioral Economics

Behavioral economics is a new and emerging field of research which incorporates insights from various related disciplines, such as psychology, sociology and neuroscience, to provide solutions for economic and social problems that cannot be easily reconciled by the traditional branch of economics. In April 2004, ISER founded the Research Center for Behavioral Economics - the first of this kind in Japan - with the aim of becoming the research hub of behavioral economics. In June 2009, ISER was selected as the Joint Usage/Research Center for Behavioral Economics by Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology (MEXT) and since then has played an integral role in bringing together researchers from all over the world and promoting active research collaboration in this field.
